Storyline

Diagnosed with a personality disorder young Darleen Fyles lives in sheltered accommodation and is obsessed with ringing the emergency services. Through her boyfriend Jamie,who cleans at a retirement home,she meets one of the residents,Diane, and,when she is burgled,rather than phone the police who will think she is crying wolf,she asks Diane's help. Darleen's mother Treena wants to move her own boyfriend and his little girl into Darleen's old room and is not keen for him to meet her. When Diane suggests to Treena that Darleen's obsession is a search for security,Treena is offended but ultimately Diane's intervention bridges the gap between the two women,as well as giving Darleen some independence,leading to her ending the phone calls. it also gives Diane the opportunity to reconcile with her own,estranged, daughter in America.

objective interesting and emotional episode
29 June 2013 | by (sea side uk) – See all my reviews

Absolutely epic episode of Moving on. Lorraine Ashbourne appears as Darlene's mother. Darlene has a learning disability along with a personality disorder that makes it difficult for her to function socially. She has a fixation with dvds on police and hospital dramas and her latest fad includes repeatedly calling the emergency services for attention in a bid to feel more secure and looked after. Darlene meets an older lady through her boyfriend James - A social enept youngster, himself fixated on James Bond. The two women forge a friendship and end up helping each other find their way with their prospective families. This episode was dealt with sensitively, Seeing the subject objectively but still emotionally. I enjoyed it thoroughly
